Willem Goeree and the production of knowledge in the early modern Netherlands

National Library of the Netherlands (Nationale Bibliotheek, KB), The Hague, March 27, 2020
CfP Deadline: Sep 22, 2019

As a prolific author, publisher and bookseller operating between Middelburg and Amsterdam, Willem Goeree represents a remarkable case study through which to investigate the processes of producing, printing and publishing knowledge in the Dutch Republic. Using Goeree and his works as a starting point, this workshop addresses topics including Goeree’s social network; his involvement in the book trade and his contact with other publishers; and the production process of the volumes he wrote and published. We welcome contributions from both early career and established scholars in the fields of art history, history of the book, history of medicine, science, education, religion and literature.

Please send an abstract of no more than 300 words for a 20-minute paper, along with a brief biographical note to Willem.Goeree.Workshop@gmail.com by September 22, 2019. For more information, see https://arthist.net/archive/21265.
